Nächtens by Johannes Brahms arranged for SATB Chorus and Orchestra

I recently completed work on orchestrating the second of the six vocal quartets of Johannes Brahms, Nächtens. I completed work on the first one, Sehnsucht, last month. Here is a link to the scrolling score for Nächtens on YouTube. This is a great choice for Halloween concerts.

I will continue to post about each one of the six vocal quartets as I complete work on them and make them available. Thank you for listening.

TEXT

Nächtens wachen auf die irren,

Lügenmächt'gen Spukgestalten,

Welche deinen Sinn verwirren.

Nächtens ist im Blumengarten

Reif gefallen, daß vergebens

Du der Blumen würdest warten.

Nächtens haben Gram und Sorgen

In dein Herz sich eingenistet,

Und auf Tränen blickt der Morgen.
